United Way of Eastern Utah has been part of this community for over 36 years and has made an impact in thousands of people’s lives. We strive to improve lives in our area by mobilizing the caring power of our community.
Almost daily, there is a family, individual or agency that contacts United Way to see if we can help with expenses for someone with cancer so they can get to treatment or other financial issues that have arisen.
We have found a need and have come together in a collaborative effort to create an opportunity. Local people in our community have formed the LIVE.LOVE.LOCAL Cancer Assistance Program to emotionally and financially support local families battling cancer in our area. United Way is administering the fund to assist with medical bills, medical supplies, and new wigs, and travel expenses.
To date we have been able to help twenty seven individuals with money given directly to them to assist with expenses that no other program could help with. Our ability to serve more is severely limited to the amount of funds in the LIVE.LOVE.LOCAL account.
